"Anything can happen in the woods." This is the promise, and premise, of the much-loved Tony Award-winning musical Into the Woods. A childless baker and his wife endeavor to lift their family curse by journeying into the woods, where they encounter Rapunzel and her mother, Cinderella, Jack (of Beanstalk fame), Little Red Riding Hood and other classic fairy tale characters. Their stories become entangled in unexpected ways — revealing what happens after "happily ever after." The wickedly witty score weaves a magical spell, warning "be careful what you wish for."
